Eastover, SC (WLTX) - The rural Richland County town of Eastover is just a few steps away from not having a police department.

The department opened two years ago, but is now on the brink of no longer being the law enforcement presence for the town.

 

Mayor Geraldene Robinson tells WLTX that they have a understanding on the table that will allow the Richland County Sheriff's Department to be the sole law enforcement presence in the town.The sheriff's department already has jurisdiction to be in the town limits.

 

Town Council members say that they are awaiting legal council before signing the agreement.We went to the police department, we found that it was locked and no one was there.When we called the only number listed on the door, we got the Richland County Sheriff's Department.
